Can you see the difference here? I had no idea she had gotten so tall. Okay, so my baby will NEVER be tall, per se, but she has gotten tall-er. The uniform is the smallest they sell & it FINALLY fits her.
First Day of School Sassiness
This is the pose you get when you let your 3 year old watch too many episodes of Good Luck Charlie & The Suite Life of Zack & Cody!
Notice the curled hair. She just had to have her hair curled because Miss Aimee had done it on Tuesday when she got her haircut.
Look at this big girl! How did she get so grown in the blink of an eye?
Ahhh, the first day of school has come and gone. Hadley has actually been in school for 9 days now. She loves it! The first week was hard dropping her off in her classroom. She wanted me to stay every day. Then, all of a sudden yesterday, she told me she wanted one of the "big girls" to walk her in. You see, Hadley's school has these Safety Ambassadors. They are older girls (7th graders I think) that wait out under the carport with Mr. Lou, the security guard, in the mornings during carpool and walk the younger kids to class.
This is how that conversation went:
Me: (as I'm pulling in to a parking space because I knew the answer to that) "Had, do you want mommy to walk you in or one of the big girls?"
Had: "Um, I think one of the big girls."
Me: "Really, okay, well I'll walk you to the carport and one of the big girls can walk you in okay? "(Still thinking "yeah right, we'll get up there and she'll change her mind.)
So we walk and chat and she says hey to Mr. Lou. Then, we are standing face to face with A.P., the big girl. She looks at Hadley and says, "Do you want me to walk you in?" Queue shy 3year old...So I lean down and ask her again which one of us she wants to walk her in. AND SHE POINTS TO THE BIG GIRL!!! What? She's supposed to want me to walk her in. Well, I guess this is better than crying for me to stay every day. So, I handed A.P. Hadley's lunchbox and school bag and off they went into the big bad world of T3. Of course, I watched until they got to the door. Maybe I snuck over to the other door to make sure she got into the building and to her classroom...maybe I didn't. Oh, who am I kidding? We all know I did!
